Via Atlas Shrugs:

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, in which President Obama told him that he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the stepson of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

I’m shocked SHOCKED I TELL YOU!

Pamela Geller has the rest of the story, and as one might expect, an avalanche of background data.

UPDATE: Donald Douglas at American Power picks up the story along with Memeorandum, Another Black Conservative, Doug Ross and The Right Scoop.

From Rory Cooper at the Heritage Foundation comes word that among the new statues unveiled today in Virginia at a memorial commemorating the occasion will be the bust of a dictator.

…when over 160,000 troops from the United States, Britain, France and Canada bravely stormed the beaches of Normandy, marking a turning point in World War II. In Bedford, Virginia, a memorial to the invasion will be unveiled with statues of western Allied leaders, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Harry Truman. The memorial will also include a bust of dictator Joseph Stalin.

WTF? On American soil?

Some would argue the point that Stalin in fact had a major influence as an ally in the conflict. But others, such as Dr. Lee Edwards, chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, disagree with the inclusion.

Since the fall of the Soviet Union, statues of Joseph Stalin have been torn down all over Europe and even in the former Soviet Union itself. The world is closer than ever before to a consensus on the evils of communism and Stalin’s primary role in the worst crimes of the last century. And yet a statue of Stalin is included in the National D-Day Memorial…

Torn down in Europe only to be reconstructed in America. They probably could have saved a few bucks from the artists commission if they would have just boxed up the ones they were tearing down in Russia and shipped them over here. I bet the freaks in Austin, which happens to be Texas’ liberal mecca, would love to have one on display on 6th Street right next to Chairman Mao and Obummer himself.

This is sickening. On D-Day?

I wonder how long that statue will last.

Governor Patrick, your pod is ready. Any coincidence he’s from Chicago? Maybe that’s where they moved Area 51.
Ever see the movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” or “They Live”? It’s like these politicians think that nothing will happen to them, if only they cooperate and sell us down the river…

In the WTF department, it seems there is a tampon* of a man named Robert Leslie Hymers III, the son of Robert Leslie Hymers Jr. who is the leader of a Protestant cult once named the Open Door Community Churches, and the  son has decided to feud with a certain Blog Mistress named Little Miss Attila. (Full disclosure: I love her blog.)

I would categorize this as a “bad idea.”

In the past, she apparently shared some of her forthright thoughts and comments regarding her experiences in his fathers “church”, and he’s none too happy about it. He’s evidently asked the FBI to investigate stalking behavior from Miss Attila.

How does one stalk from a blog? Inquiring minds want to know.

Dude.

First off, you need to look again at the title of the lady’s blog before you decide to do something this imbecilic.

Secondly, have you noticed the name of her blog?

Thirdly, if your aim was to quiet the whole thing down, well, you might  be inclined to re-think that little strategy now. Maybe just a bit.

H/T TCOTS

*because Doug beat me to douche-bag.

Right up front, I must apologize. Using the term Baptist in the same sentence, or even the same article with a “man” like Fred Phelps is to disrespect Baptists everywhere. I was raised Baptist and the vile hatred these people spew is beyond contempt.

As an example, let me point you to the latest atrocious demonstration they are planning in Louisiana this Saturday at the funeral of a fallen American soldier. The motorcade and funeral of a hero and defender of freedom will be picketed as he is lain to rest by the very clueless people he died defending.

That’s some fine gratitude there Fred. I hope you choke on it.

I first heard of this from a certain corndog loving blogger and soon found that others such as Pat at So it Goes in Shreveport, and Bob at The Camp of the Saints had joined the cacophonous outrage that surrounds the stupidity.

But wait, there’s more! According to the appropriately named Lipton T. Bagg, at the newly bloggrolled website Viewed From The Right:

Beside protesting at the funerals of SPC Joshua Tomlinson in Minden, LA. (PGR is on this one, I understand) and Ronnie James Dio in Los Angeles, Westboro will also be doing multiple protests at Arlington National Cemetery, Ft. Leavenworth National Cemetery in KS., Boston and Lexington, MA. and in Portland, OR.

This is a travesty beyond comprehension.  To think they were educated within our own borders speaks volumes to the underlying problem these maroons represent. How can these people be Americans? They surely haven’t been properly educated as to what has made our country great. At least what it was before the progressives gained a foothold in government.

I understand moral and political outrage. Most times I think there should be more of it, and I don’t disagree with their right to protest, I just wish they would find another, more appropriate way to vent their anger. This soldier was the instrument of policy, not the maker of it. Take your protest to Washington, not the funerals of brave defenders of the very freedoms you enjoy. For that, you are awarded the title “douche-bag”.

Knowing the members of this hate-cult will never take the advice offered here, to the people who would stand by our soldiers, I will pass on a suggestion or two from the comments at Pat’s blog:

Janet said… At one of the other funerals where the WBC picketed, some students counter protested by holding up white sheets to shield the family from the picketers. What an awesome, peaceful way to take the wind out of their sails. It would be amazing to see that become a trend…

Also, stolen from Pat’s comment section, is this excellent counter measure from First Baptist Minden:

First Baptist Minden said… In response to the Westboro protest group, First Baptist Church Minden is providing a way for you to positively and to peacefully express your support. So for every minute that the protestors are on site, we are asking you to pledge a per minute monetary amount. ALL the proceeds will be given directly to the widow of a TRUE HERO, SPC. JOSHUA TOMLINSON. So the longer they choose to stay and protest, the more it will benefit SPC. JOSHUA TOMLINSON’S family.

If you would like to help, you can print and fill out this card and bring it by the church office, email it to fbcminden@firstminden.org or mail it to the church office at:

FBC Minden
ATTN: TOMLINSON FUND
301 Pennsylvania Ave.
Minden, LA 71055

Or you can call the Church Office at: 318-377-4434

I tried the FB page link. It appears to be down. The First Baptist Minden link should be working however.

Read more on this at My Bossier and an invitation  here, and at Andy’s Place, both also added to the blogroll.

God Bless America and the men and women who defend her.

UPDATE: Looks like the Westboro folks were a no-show. Good. Lipton T. Bagg has video of the patriots who lined the streets to honor this man and his service. Warms my heart to see Americans standing on principle.

Pundit and Pundette have a new post up:

In-our-face Ground Zero mosque to open on 9/11/2011

For all those Americans too mind-numbed by multi-culti political correctness to read the writing on the wall…  emphasis robot

While I understand the PC angle and the qualifying adjectives, still, I must say “I resemble that remark, even if it wasn’t pointed at me.”

I must also ask the planners, with utmost sincerity and resolve..

A mosque at the site of the World Trade Center? WTF?

There is much more info to be had at P&P’s place. I suggest you check it out.
